    Born to run.

    No pressure or anything, though.

Meredith McNair (before she needed a Hyland's remedy) and her posse at the house party

Winner of Hyland’s Homeopathic Gift Basket

As you might have seen on our Facebook page, we’ve been hosting some really great house parties this spring. (We’re on hiatus until the fall, when we’ll party in suburbs of Boston and Chicago, so if you live in those areas, and want in on the action, email us at runmother [at] gmail [dot] com.) At every party, we give away swag-bag extraordinaires with some of our favorite goodies in them, including tubes of nuun electrolyte hydration tablets, packets of GU, and a bevy of Hyland’s Homeopathic products.

After our party in the Portland area (held, actually, just across the mighty Columbia River at Sweet Spot Skirts), a mother runner named Meredith wrote about how, alas, she was putting some Hyland’s products (and nuun) to good use…

Together in the studio at last - with Jonah, our darling producer.

The Ladies Reminisce about Running Together

Together at last! On a recent visit to Portland, Dimity and Sarah finally get to record a podcast sitting within spitting distance of each other. (Thankfully the mikes served as spittle-shields.) In honor of the occasion, the mother runners relive runs they’ve taken together—from a sweltering 10-miler along the banks of Lake Michigan to the Nike Women’s Marathon (the genesis of their books) and a few Seattle-area jaunts. And Sarah admits to contemplating getting a tattoo.

If you’re digging our podcasts, we’d be super-grateful if you’d take a minute (because we *know* you have so many to spare!) to write a review on iTunes…

Amy after her first 13.1 (her fave distance) in May 2009

Follow This Mother!

After sweating through record temps in the Boston Marathon, I felt an immediate bond with Amy Bailey, 36, when I read her blog post about running the Cellcom Green Bay Half-Marathon last month. It was one of her slowest halfsies, and race officials shut down the entire course (26.2 and 13.1) shortly after she crossed the finish line. Finding out this mother of one from Green Bay, Wisconsin, suffered from plantar fasciitis for more than a year sealed the deal on our connection. Find out more about this former smoker-turned-runner.

Best recent run: Lately it seems my best runs–those that I actually feel good the whole time and not just the tingly endorphins around Mile 3–come just before the important ones…

Hump Day Giveaway: From the Ground Up

Hump Day Giveaway: From the Ground Up

Where is my life balanced?

I asked myself that on a run the other day, and was hard pressed to come up with an answer. My house is on stable ground, as far as I know. (Although my state is on fire….do a rain dance for Colorado, please.). But where else can I find that elusive balance? One day, I feel like I’m galloping at full speed, and I’ve got that elusive it. The kids are happy, husband is too, fridge is full, there’s a breeze in the air, there are less than ten things in each room that need to be put away, I feel blessed and loved and content and I can’t imagine it getting any better…

I'm dazzled by her pearly smile--and clean face

Time to Talk Dirty: Mud Run Lingo

Few things I love more than silly slang; as I wrote once on here, it’s reason #8,521 why I love my husband, Jack. In Train Like a Mother: How to Get Across Any Finish Line – and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity, we have an Another Mother Runner Dictionary in the back with definitions for terms such as “barnacle buster,” “googly eyes,” and “releasing the cracken.” (Crack open our orange baby to see what they mean!)

So when a PR gal emailed us a bevy of catch phrases to toss around at mud runs, we had to share them. (They come from the CustomInk website where you can order T-shirts to wear for an upcoming Warrior Dash or Muddy Buddy…
